Week 10: Wicklow then?
« on: November 14, 2016, 14:10:34 »
When: This Saturday 19th of November
Where: Wicklow (if the levels are good)
Plan: Meet at the boat house at 10am for the trailer pack.

So with assessments coming up in week 11 we're hoping to see all you disco paddlers out practicing those pool-perfected skills!  :laugh: :laugh:
No "lahinch-hangovers" will be taken as excuses! angel.gif

Let the copy and paste begin:

€10! This covers the cost of the bus and instructors

•   Warm clothes!!!! ….you know the drill at this stage!!
(avoid cotton at all costs! It makes you very, very cold when you’re wet). Anything made out of 'poly-' materials is a good bet!  Fleeces are great! Fleecy pyjamas are even better! Tights make a good layer, especially to pop over your fleecy layers before trying to put on a wetsuit (even the lads should consider investing!!) If you have a wetsuit bring it! If not, the club has a small selection of them...try to get to the boathouse on time to get first pick!  (I mean does anyone really read this now .... )

You can never, ever have enough layers!!!
So here’s your essential guide to keeping nice and toasty on the river ; http://forum.ucdcanoeclub.com/index.php/topic,10222.0.html

•   A pair of old shoes! (Or wet booties if you have them). For this trip socks won’t work...the water is going to be low, so if you come out of the boat, you'll be stepping on rocks (which is not fun in socks!) If you don't have a pair, pop into your local Penneys or Tesco and pick up a pair of cheap shoes! (Honestly, fair play if you are still soldiering on and reading this ... Or you're a Fresher ..)

•   Towel and warm, dry clothes for afterwards!

•   Some hot stuff! Flasks of tea, soup, hot blackcurrant...they'll all be much appreciated on the bus home!!  And chocolate bars or cereal bars!!  Nothing better than some sugar after a fun day on the water (avoid things that aren't in wrappers though, cause you won’t want to wait to wash your hands before eating them!).

So lets gooooo to Wickloooow!!!
